If it wasn’t for the internet, we’d be doing so many things all wrong.

How would we know how to close our cereal boxes the correct way? Or how to dispose of hot grease? We wouldn’t even know that we were making mashed potato all wrong.

So, thank you internet. The latest offering of our overlords is about how to line your bins correctly.

A TikTokker named Chris showed off an ever-so-simple trick for ensuring you line your bins with a plastic bag in an effortless way.

Instead of merely putting a bag inside the bin and then folding the edges around the rim of the bin, Chris placed the bag in front of the bin and pushed it in.

This way there’s no air getting in, meaning anything you dispose of doesn’t fall by the sides.

Chris’s hack also takes a second to do which means you don’t need to faff around with the bin trying to place the bag right.

Watch the video to see how he does the trick.

Chris explains in the video: ‘I’m going to show you how to change trash can bags.

‘When I learned not all people do this I was SHOOK.

‘What you should be doing is putting the bag over, and then pushing it in so there’s no air, and there you are, boom, clean, you’re welcome.’

Though the video was posted in June, the viral clip is still doing the rounds, wowing people everyday with the simple hack.

The TikTok has been liked more than 99,000 times, leaving viewers impressed.

One person commented: ‘You just changed my life’.

Another wrote: ‘I’ve learned more on TikTok than I’ve learned in school’.

A third said: ‘Bruh, I just learned how to close a cereal box and now this? Why doesn’t life come with a manual of sorts?’

Why, indeed.
